These images are inspired by a Technicolour version of Tim Walker's film The Lost Explorer which I saw at a screening at Somerset House last year. It was played alongside The African Queen, a Technicolour masterpiece starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. I think viewing the films one after the other has mixed them in my mind forever more and these pictures represent the amalgamation of the two. I've always quite fancied the idea of being a great explorer; getting lost for months at time and discovering rare blooms and strange animals.
My dress is a Liberty print dress made in the 70s by a really great boutique called Origin, my mum found it in our local Oxfam. The print is Icanthe Tana Lawn, it's so lovely and reminds me of all the exotic plants one might find in the jungle.
